    please provide make/model of your computer, and the exact version of Steam you are using. We may need to refer this to the gaming forum.

    What about the Steam version you are running? What is that?

    In the meantime, you could backup your stuff to external media first, and then do a W10 Clean Install and download the latest GPU drivers, as well as the latest Steam version. Retest.

    If that doesn't work, you may need to test your hardware, as a failed hard drive or RAM memory chip could be causing spurious results even with known good drivers. This could take 1-3 days depending on capacity or RAM or HDD.

    If that's too much trouble, you could simply replace the HDD with a new one of equal or higher capacity and reinstall W10, drivers, Steam. That should fix it.
